Saone River
📍 France
The Saône River is one of the biggest rivers in France. It runs right through the centre of Lyon where it enters from the east side and flows to the west. While in Lyon, visitors can enjoy the views of Victor Hugo's 19th-century bridge “Pont de la Boucle” which gives a great view of the city’s skyline. Every July, there is also a 1 week music festival on the river banks as part of Fete des Lumieres festival.

The Saône isn't just in France; it is also located in Switzerland where it starts in the cities of Mulhouse and Saint-Louis. Here the river meanders through pine forests and vineyards, perfect for nature lovers. The mouth of Saône is Rhone – one of the biggest rivers in France which creates an estuary that has a unique microclimate and supports a variety of flora & fauna. Boating is also popular here thus making the Saône a great spot for a weekend of fun and sightseeing.
